If this helps, I know and kinda am a Rizk.

Actually I am a Nimmer, but our cousins are.

They spell it Risk now. The only surviving Risks I know of are in Kimball, Nebraska.

George Risk, was my grandma's brother. She was, as you may guess Martha Risk(1988?) of Cedar Rapids, IA. She Married Albert(abdulla) Nimmer(1974) an lebanese immigrant. (Syrian, all the same at that time) The Nimmer Children are my dad Allan(Cedar Rapids), and his siblings
George(Omaha), Don(Warrensburg, Mo) and Mary(Cedar Rapids). (all still with us)

Back to the Risks:

George Risk(86?) started George Risk Industries in Kimball Nebraska which is currently run by his son Ken Risk. (www.grisk.com) His has a brother Dale(california?) and a sister, I think (I may be wrong about that).

Ken has several Children.

Ken's Mother Ileen is still living in Kimball as well. I don't know her maiden name.

My memory gets even more sketchy from there.

Were there more Risk Siblings of George Risk and my grandma....I don't know.
